Huawei has launched their latest flagship for 2020- the Huawei P40 Pro in Nepal. Priced at Rs. 129,990, the Huawei P40 Pro is one of the most expensive phones you can buy in Nepal. Huawei is having a hard time keeping up with the competition thanks to the US-China fiasco. So, it will be surprising to see if they are able to sell enough Huawei P40 Pro in the Nepalese market. Huawei P40 Pro has a lot going for it. It has the top of line hardware features including a top-notch camera system and a great SoC. The display on the new Huawei phone is also excellent. The phone features a 6.58-inch 90Hz OLED display with FHD+ resolution. There’s also an under-display fingerprint scanner that we usually find in flagship smartphones.
Here’s a quick run-down of the specs of the Huawei P40 Pro:
Huawei P40 Pro Specification
- 6.58-inch Full HD+ OLED Display @ 90Hz
- HiSilicon Kirin 990 Soc (5G capable)
- 8GB of RAM
- 128GB of Internal Storage
- Triple rear camera setup (50MP+12MP+40MP)
- 32MP selfie camera
- 4200 mAh battery
- 27W fast wireless Huawei SuperCharge
Everything is great about the Huawei P40 Pro except for its software. Thanks to the US sanctions, you don’t get Play Store nor any of the Android services on the Huawei P40 Pro. There’s no Play Store, Google Drive, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Play Services, Gmail, or any other Google services on this phone.
No matter how good the hardware, if there is a limitation of the software, it’s quite hard to sell a phone. And considering the fact that it’s priced well over 1 lakh in Nepal, it’s going to be a price that is going to be tough to swallow for most people.
If you are a Huawei fanboy/fangirl or want the absolute best camera hardware on any smartphone, getting the Huawei P40 Pro makes sense. But for a normal smartphone consumer, looking elsewhere makes a lot of sense.
